Linda Em is a London based, Irish born singer, songwriter and wordsmith. From classic Woodstock era songwriters to the Queens of Country and darker modern day luminaries, Linda draws from her influences an ethereal energy flow that is evident in voice and song.
Her lyrical narrative is akin to that of authors, poets, playwrights and artists with a strong storytelling aspect. Her subject matter runs the gamut from myths and legends, the inspirational figures she has known in her own life and the battered but noble occupants of the typical old pubs, townhouses and streets of Ireland and the East End of London with a strong cross cultural counterpart.
Since her 2015 debut album 'Shadow Lands' Linda has continually honed her writing, singing and musical landscape to reach her current place somewhere close to Country-noir with splashes of Gospel, Folk and Soul.
Her new single 'Hey Baby' is a collaboration between Linda Em and Irish artist and writer Linda Coogan Byrne. Recorded and produced by Gavin Glass in Orphan Studios, Dublin, it was mixed by Fergal Davis and combines a classic 1950s big dramatic arrangement with a retro yet modern instrumentation.
“Hey Baby” showcases a singer who is more than comfortable in the spotlight with her rich in atmosphere vocal delivery which draws the listener in further the more it builds. It is out March 30th 2018 across all digital platforms.
